Jon Montgomery, Skeleton Athlete, Releases Farm Training Video
WINNIPEG, MB – At the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Whistler, BC, Jon Montgomery won Olympic Gold in Skeleton, inspiring Canadians across the country with his determination and genuine spirit. Now he's training harder than ever to bring home the gold from Sochi, Russia in 2014.
BrettYoung has been a sponsor of Jon’s since 2010. “It has been a terrific relationship with Jon. He personifies BrettYoung; home grown, world class with a little fun mixed in,” says Calvin Sonntag, CEO of BrettYoung. “He has been a great ambassador for BrettYoung and we are proud to continue our support of Jon in his drive to Harvest Gold in 2014.”
BrettYoung and Jon have produced a YouTube video showcasing his training regimen—or a version of it. Entitled "On-the-Farm Training with Jon Montgomery", the video is a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ take on the workouts of this Manitoba-bred athlete.
The purpose of the video is to encourage fellow Canadians to help Jon and Darla(Jon’s wife and fellow skeleton athlete—also featured in the video) Harvest Gold for Canada in 2014. With financial support, they'll be able to develop the world-class equipment needed to compete and give them the best chance for success.
“Farmers across Canada know that proper equipment plays a large part in the success of their operations,” says Sonntag. “It’s no different for Jon and Darla. In a sport where tenths of a second can make the difference between gold and an ‘also-ran’, equipment R&D is extremely important. We hope that farmers and ag-retailers across Canada will enjoy the video and get behind Jon and Darla.”
Says Jon, "BrettYoung has been incredible. It's such a unique opportunity to work with a sponsor in this way. We definitely have an innovative partnership, and this amazing support adds fuel to the fire for Darla and me as we work to reach our goals. The video was a blast to make. You can never take the prairie out of this boy!"

WINNIPEG, MB – Richardson Pioneer, already a retailer of several BrettYoung® branded canola varieties and all other BrettYoung product lines, will offer limited volumes of BrettYoung® branded Genuity® Roundup Ready® canola varieties at selected retail locations in 2013. A limited number of bags of 6060 RR will be made available to Richardson this season. Richardson will also offer BrettYoung value-price varieties, 6130 RR and 997 RR.
The decision by Richardson to add BrettYoung® branded Genuity® Roundup Ready® canola varieties to its offering is based on its evaluation of the BrettYoung portfolio in its canola variety evaluation program over the last three seasons.
"Demand for 6060 RR is expected to be strong in 2013 based on its performance. We have been working with our customers to forecast demand over the last 6 to 12 months to guide our seed production plans, as we do every year and on all of our products. Based on the forecast and our production plan, we are confident that we will be able to meet customer orders for 6060 RR barring any unforeseen seed production outcomes," according to Dan Mulder - VP, Retail Sales for BrettYoung.

New BrettYoung Website Launched
You may have noticed that our website was looking a little old and there was not much changing. That was because we were very busy working behind the scenes building a brand new site - a bigger, better and we hope an easier to use site.
Building a website is a lot like building a home – once construction starts you can’t wait to move-in, the finishing touches seem to take forever and some parts are added later. We decided we can’t wait any longer to move in to the new site so we have officially launched the new BrettYoung website on April 20.
We are excited to launch the site, but you will notice some parts are under construction and we will continue to work on some finishing touches.
We are anxious for you to visit our new site and please come back often to see how the site progresses.
